The bad and the ugly....
Lately here the babies have been testing boundaries. Boundaries they haven't tested in months. They have grown taller, so they are now able to pull things off of the table. I am running out of places to put things that they can't have. They also have figure out how to push chairs and laundry baskets to reach just about anything that want. I am at the end of my rope! I can not pee with out them doing something they are not supposed to, let alone fix a meal. Desk drawers have been empties, dvd racks have been emptied., even diaper pails have been emptied.... umm GROSS! There has been biting, scratching, hitting, sitting on each others heads. I thought I had this place baby proofed, but geez! I am trying to discipline with time out, but I'm not sure they get it, I'm also not sure if they get it but they know their blank stare and tears makes me second guess myself. There is also when I am dealing with one in time out the other has climbed up on the toy box and it playing with the tv. I am pulling my hair out!
This morning I had my laptop by the side of the couch under the side table, where it is 95 percent of the time. A table the babies can not reach. My coffee was sitting on said table that the babies can not reach. Well this morning they reached it... and poured coffee all over the basket of clean diapers... and my lap top. Luckily it was just on the top so nothing important even got wet, but I thought I was going to lose my mind. Will got to work to find a sippy cup of milk had been dumped in his bag and his laptop was sitting in milk. (which is only 2 days old since his old laptop crapped out and he JUST got a new one.) Luckily everything worked for him. I'm just saying.... these babies are really testing me and right now I am barely passing.
So if any of you out there wanna pull your hair out today, I am right there with you! I lost it a bit this morning, but after that happened I was able to get myself in a much better head space to deal with what ever else the babies have to throw at me today.
So there ya have it... not always sunshine and giggle in this journey of motherhood.
